Sen. Mike Duffy is now accused of charging taxpayers for personal travel to funerals and giving money to three people under the guise of a consulting contract.

A new court filing alleges “inappropriate expense claims associated with personal attendance at funeral and related ceremonies.”

The court documents, released this afternoon, allege that Duffy filed eight separate expense claims that the RCMP says involved personal or partisan travel.

The claims were filed from June 2009 to September 2012.
